Combating that time of year classified by U.S. Government officials as one of the deadliest times on America’s roadways due to an increase in drunk driving, the Washington Regional Alcohol program, a local nonprofit, recently announced that free cab rides will be offered to would-be drunk drivers throughout the D.C. area during the winter holidays.

The annual Holiday SoberRide® program will operate between 10:00 pm and 6:00 am each evening between Dec. 13 and Jan. 1 as a way to keep local roads safe from impaired drivers during this traditionally high-risk, holiday period.

During the evening hours, between Dec. 13 and Jan. 1, Washington-metropolitan area residents celebrating with alcohol may call the toll-free SoberRide phone number 1–800–200–TAXI and be afforded a no-cost (up to $ 30 fare), safe way home.
